With sunnier and warmer summers ahead and a shortage of charging points for electric cars, this is a nice idea: pop-up mini solar parks.

A prototype has already been built and is being tested by solar parking company 3ti at Surrey Research Park in Guildford.

Billed as a world first, it has already generated 4.86 MWh of solar electricity in eight weeks – enough to drive an average electric family car 20,000 miles.

The mini solar parking and EV charging hub is based on a recycled shipping container and can be installed in just 48 hours.

Each hub has up to 12 charging points, linked to 36 solar panels and up to 250 kWh of battery storage to increase the available grid power.

Tim Evans, founder and boss of 3ti, said: “It offers drivers, especially those who cannot charge at home, easy, cost-effective charging of EVs.”
